I liked Nathan's blog - it is interesting to see the paradigm changing (a little scary, too!). And I think Jody reminds us of something too many newbie writers these days forget -- there is no easy path to success. I think a lot of new writers think self-publishing will make them rich, but it's not a silver bullet. You still have to put in the hours it takes to create a quality product and to get the word out to the "influencers" (and therefore readers) that Nathan talks about.

Ooh, I very much enjoyed Aliette's post; I must have missed it when it first went up.

I saw one just today I thought you might like: Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling.

That Pixar post is indeed a goodie (I linked to it a couple of months ago - http://jongibbs.livejournal.com/289933.html).

Thanks for sharing, though :)

D'oh! I'm sorry Jon. I always think I'm noticing all your posts, but I guess I miss some. Well, glad you liked it too :-)

You know, at my first reading,
everyone was gazing at me,
naturally enough, and it made me nervous.
But I realized, you have to take the stares...
